Recorded on May 13 and made public by the National Intelligence Service (NIS) Friday, the transcript includes a plot to overthrow the government by attacking major infrastructure here in the event of an inter-Korean war.
The people who appear in the transcript include Rep. Lee Seok-ki and other members of the minor opposition Unified Progressive Party (UPP), infamous for taking a pro-North Korea stance. They are also suspected of being part of a bigger organization that has connections with the North.
In the transcript, Lee tells other members of the UPP, We have to prepare for war, politically and militarily.

He also praises progress in North Koreas nuclear development.
